Here are some of the questions that we are working with researchers to investigate:
- What is the overall impact of charter schools on student achievement, high school graduation, college attendance, and college persistence?
- Why are effective charter schools succeeding?
- How effective are charter schools at serving students with special needs and students who are learning English?
- Who is enrolling in virtual charter schools, and are these schools successful at helping students achieve?
- Are teachers who transfer to charter schools more effective in the charter school setting than they were in traditional public schools?
- Are charter schools better at removing ineffective staff members than traditional schools?
- What are the pedagogical approaches that lead to student success?
